Chinese Buffet, Sushi Buffet & Hibachi Grill

One question you will hear people when they first move to town is:  “Where is the best Chinese food?” Well, there is certainly one place that tops that list:  Sakura.

Sakura is located right after you make the turn out of Sevierville proper.  This turn puts you on the Parkway in Sevierville and at this point you are headed toward Pigeon Forge.  You don’t have to go very far.  Sakura, is located across the Parkway from the shopping center that contains Outback Steakhouse and Belk.  Go up past the traffic light in front of Popeye’s and then turn back down to Sakura.  Hopefully you brought your appetite and a love for Asian cuisine because you are in for a great meal.

Sakura has basically three different buffets all for one price under one roof:

  • Chinese Buffet – This buffet has all of the typical things that you see at a Chinese buffet.  Sesame chicken, General Sao’s chicken, broccoli beef.. all of the staples and of course somethings that you don’t see everywhere:  stuffed mussels, frog legs, coconut shrimp and at lunch, peanut chicken which, if you haven’t had you need to try.
  • Sushi Buffet – If you love sushi then this is the place for you.  They keep the sushi coming and they make it fresh.  The sushi moves fast enough that you won’t end up with a piece that has been sitting there for a long time.  From the normal rolls like the California Roll to the more complex and the tempura rolls there is sushi to fit every taste and it is all done with flare, style and speed.
  • Hibachi Grill – If you have ever been to a hibachi grill style restaurant but really wished you could pick what they cooked for you, then you have found a new favorite place to eat.  You pick the raw, uncooked ingredients, put it on a plate and hand it to the chef.  The chef then cooks it to your taste, using the right amount of sauce and the right amount of heat to meet your taste.  You are left with an amazing meal that will fill you up and probably have you coming back for seconds or maybe even thirds.
Sakura is a local hangout and sometimes weekly visit for those people that live here that love Asian style food.  For the tourist that is looking for the place where the locals tie on the feed bag, this is the place to end up.  They even have specials during thr week (usually Wednesday and Sunday night) so that you can eat for a little less – of course, the locals know this as well so you can expect a crowd.
